Format: Paperback
This book is a very superficial guide to root cellars. Very much fluffed out with useless information. More than half of the book covers beginner level gardening mixed in with the information about root cellars; so you're really only buying half of a book. There are a few plans included in the appendix but none of the plans include a flat land, completely underground cellar. There are also pages of common sense lists like a "tool list" that nobody really needs to read.... Someone should write a good book about root cellars someday

If you grow your own produce at home and you want to store food and save money during the winter months, a root cellar is an essential part of long-term food security. Root cellars are perfect for maintaining the right temperature and humidity to preserve the nutrient value of your fresh food. If you don't have a root cellar and you're not sure how to start building one, Julie Fryer's book has all the information you will need from breaking ground to food storage. Even though you think you may not have room, Fryer explains that every home can have a root cellar of some form.

The book starts out with the essential information that is vital for anyone considering a root cellar, such as temperature, humidity, ventilation and pest control. Next, it discusses various design options and which materials you will need. These sections are very helpful for readers who have little or no D.I.Y experience.

This guide has a wealth of step-by-step instructions to help you keep your root cellar running smoothly, from when and how to harvest to produce storage charts. Fryer trumps with ten superb root cellar designs ranging from a floor mounted chest root cellar to an 8 foot diameter round culvert. The designs are well thought out and have easy to follow plans. The recipes from the root cellar are a nice touch at the end. If you are serious about safe food storage and you want to create your own root cellar, this is the only book you will need to successfully do so.

I got this book and found it to be a very good read and a great resource.
There are lots of tips and tricks from design all the way to using the completed structure.
The layout of the book was very good. Makes referencing different sections easy.
